Episode Narrative Below normal precipitation, above normal temperatures, and nearly continuous drying winds were common across Deep South Texas during the month of March. In general, dry conditions persisted across the region since mid November 2008. Soil moisture became abnormally to excessively dry, allowing severe to extreme drought to develop by the end of March.
According to The United States Drought Monitor, severe drought conditions (D2) had extended into much of Deep South Texas, with extreme drought conditions (D3) over the extreme northern sections of Brooks and Kenedy counties, by the end of March. The drought conditions would intensify during April, increasing stress on agriculture, including crops, pastures and grasslands.
Event Narrative Severe drought conditions (D2) extended into much of Deep South Texas, including southern Brooks County. Extreme drought conditions (D3) developed over northern Brooks County. The drought conditions continued to affect agriculture, including crops, pastures and grasslands on the west section of the King Ranch in Brooks County.
